When living in a smaller space, you have think a bit broader and create comfortable living while maximizing and defining your space. One way to do this is by creating a pattern, or multiples of a piece. Also, you can use the piece for different things, side table? coffee table? you decide what you need.We decided to forego a conventional coffee table since we couldn't find one that fit right in our space. I had spotted these great zebra ottoman stools at World Market and picked up 2 and - viola - a coffee table that is functional (we love using colored trays when dining or cocktailing with friends) and comfortable (prop up your feet on the upholstered cushion).
Inspired multiples of accent tables can be found at CB2 - acrylic - and Lorenzo Brady - wood.
